City tour

Kharkiv train station

Going to Kiev and feel lost? Wanna meet some locals to see secret places?

Here I am! I promise you to have unfergettable time in my city! We plan the tour according to your preference and interest. Museums, galleries, churches, food,monuments, castles, parks and much more will be in our list.

If you wish me to guide you in another city, no problem! However, my tickets and accommodation aren't included in the price of guiding.

 In case I'm not available there are 2 options:

1) I ask my friend to guide you instead of me

2) We make a small group of two (or more people) and the price will be lower - 30 USD (for about 5 hours)

Cost: 10 USD per hour.(I recommend 5 hours tour). Tickets and food aren't included. Airport picking up 20 USD. 

Why me? : I love communicating with people and would be glad to show you around. You will get a high quality tour and visit local places. I live in Kiev for quiet a long time and I can help you with translation as well. If you take more than one day, I have a discount system!

Village tour

Psel river

Tired of city life? Wanna know about average Ukrainian lifestyle and meet local people?

Then this tour is for you! It is exclusive chance to meet with real Ukrainians (who are my relatives), eat traditional home-made food, take care of animals and enjoy the nature! 

Velyki Sorochyntsi village is situated in Poltava region, which is famous for its preserved culture and picturesque views. 

What to take? In case you will miss your food, you should take it as shops in a village have small range of choice. Cash in Ukrainian hryvnia is obligatory. Take simple clothes according to the weather.

How we get there? There are two options: we take a subway from Kiev(12-20 USD round way tickets 1 person, 3-4 hours)  to Myrgorod and take a taxi to the village which cost 10 USD. Or my dad drives us directly and you pay for the petrol. I won't let you go there by yourself :)

 

Cost: 80 USD per day. Accommodation, 3 times per day food and my 24/7 help is included. Tickets and your personal expenses aren't included (I recommend to stay at least 2 days, since the road takes time. Up to 4 days, so you aren't bored there ;)

"I totally recommend the village trip! Taya's relatives are super nice and even though i only speak basic Russian, we got along well and she was always as a translator. You may also be surprised to find that there's actually quite a lot to do : museums, a church, a river to swim in, or you can help to tend animals and plants. It's probably not for everyone,but it's a great opportunity to experience Ukrainian life and culture"

Carlos from Spain

"If you want to know how is real life in a country, you must go to a place outside from big cities. Taya's grandparents gonna make you feel very comfortable there, be ready to eat a lot and drink vodka xD I was lucky that I rented a car and we could go to more places. Also Taya can show you some card games, but she is gonna let you win only the first time and never again ;D I had a good time there!"
